Detailed Description

Interlaced: The Weavers' Guild of Boston Celebrates 90 Years of Friendship and Education--the title describes the inclusive nature of this collection of projects. The Weavers' Guild of Boston has been on a mission "to stimulate interest in weaving and to promote good work" since its foundation in 1923. It has taught workshops, hosted sales, and published monographs of weaving topics.

Interlaced shows the wide range of interests within the guild by featuring a series of woven pieces by its members. Each piece is photographed in color, with a photo of the piece as a whole plus a close-up of the fabric. The photos are accompanied by a brief biography of the weaver, information about the yarns and techniques used, and a draft of the structure. While there are not detailed "how-to" instructions for these pieces, there is enough information for an intermediate weaver to get a start on making her or his own variation on the project.

The book is organized by structure, with the following headings:

  • Plain Weave
  • Twill Weaves
  • Plain Weave Blocks
  • Lace Weaves
  • Tied Weaves Gamp; Relatives
  • Other Block Weaves
  • Miscellaneous Structures
  • Combinations of Structures

The pieces include scarves, bags, rugs, dolls, blankets, clothing, and table runners. This book is an collection of contemporary textiles to inspire beginners and experienced weavers alike.
